Winning Weekend

Hope you all had a great weekend! It went by way too fast but that seems to be the norm these days as it’s already mid September and I feel like I was just here a couple of weeks ago…

This morning I woke up to a beautiful sunrise

It made me feel better about the weekend ending.

Our weekend was great as always. I’m a huge football fan and the Redskins played the Giants (the team Adam likes) on Sunday so I threw spicy turkey chili in the crockpot

got our game gear on

and watched the redskins spank the giants bootay!

I did feel bad for my boyfriend so I made him some fresh brownies and added some fro-yo on top.

Good food is the way to a mans heart! Remember that ladies 🙂

Before I served up dessert we ate our bowls of chili with a hefty scoop of plain greek yogurt and some healthy Honey Cornbread

I make my cornbread with applesauce instead of oil, almond milk instead of regular milk and egg whites instead of a whole egg. I also drizzle some agave nectar over the muffins before they bake.

They turn out perfect! Here is the recipe i use.

Sorry, I got so excited about Sunday I forgot to mention Saturday.

We woke up early and headed to a charity event I had set-up at work.

I’m so lucky to have a supportive boyfriend!

Since he woke up early to go into work with me on a Saturday I agreed to attending the italian street festival

Adam loves pictures.

He played lots of games

and ate lots of food

Sicilian steak sandwich and swedish fish slushie! I had a few bites of both – we shared wings earlier and I was still stuffed.

Things we didn’t indulge on:

Fried Oreos.

I’m usually all about the crazy sweets but this honestly grossed me out. Anyone ever had one??

We headed to the mall to find me some boots and became ravenous while shopping. What’s it about shopping that makes you so hungry? Everywhere had a line but Johnny Rockets…joy. Since we were trying to be healthy after our lunch I ordered a salad

Romaine, dried cranberries, almond slivers and grilled chicken

But I guess Adam didn’t get the healthy memo..

eek. That boy loves his meat.

Since I was so healthy at dinner I wanted some fro-yo

I can finally say I’ve been to 16 handles! I think it may be my favorite fro-yo place so far… Now for the questions of the day – Can you guess which one is mine? What is the name of your favorite place to get fro-yo?

King and Queen

This weekend was a good one. I may or may not have a food hangover from last night… Adam and I ate like King’s (and Queens) this entire weekend.

Saturday morning we got up early to run errands.. Ok, so really we only ran one errand and then hit up the outlets. I sent a batch of these to Miss Shanna.She sent me a pair of shoes in return

I think I won that swap 😉 These shoes are HOT.

After we dropped off the cookies we headed straight to shopping!

Adam’s a really good shopping partner. He doesn’t pick out the same skirt to try on as I do, he tells me that I look beautiful in EVERYTHING and he doesn’t complain about going in every store. He just asks for my iphone to play angry birds and finds a seat near the dressing room.

We did A LOT of shopping so it’s fair to say we worked up quite the appetite when we were done. We headed into the food court and found a place called Greean Leaf’s & Bananas.

We split the Acai & Blueberry Smoothie and I ordered a chicken and avocado wrap. I wrapped up half in a to go box and ate half  there.

Twas yummy.

After our big day of shopping we met Adam’s parents down the shore for some dinner at Shrimp Box. We called ahead so it wasn’t too bad of a wait. We all ordered seafood dishes that were extremely tasty. When we were done they offered to get ice cream… I clearly didnt decline 😉

I ordered that peanut buttery goodness. I highly suggest you get to a DQ and order this because it’s only available this August.

After our indulgent treats the night before we needed a good sweat! Adam and I went to the gym around 2 and worked out for a little over an hour. I threw some ribs in the crock pot earlier so when we got home the smell had taken over our teeny tiny apartment.

We waited a little bit before digging in but it was WELL worth it.


Ribs, Baked Potato, Salad AND

Sweet Potato Biscuits!

I had these for the first time in North Carolina and have wanted to recreate them since. I did a pretty good job because even though we were stuffed to the brim we still made room for one of these.

Oh, and this.

I swear we have separate compartments in our stomach that allow room for dessert. So, yeah I’m not doing too well on one of my goals… But I’m starting fresh today!

I’m starting my first day on the job today and was thinking of wearing this J. Crew dress.

Like my curtsy? Our mirror fell down and I didn’t have the patience to mess with it this morning.

Wish me luck!! Recipe for these coming tomorrow 🙂

QUESTIONS: Does anyone else feel like they ALWAYS have room for dessert?
